ABOUT BILLY MORRISON
His rise from homelessness and drug addiction on the streets of Los Angeles, to being in seminal rock band, The Cult and now playing guitar for music Icon Billy Idol since 2009, is a fantastic and inspirational story. Billy Morrison has already packed five lifetimes into his journey and for the past few years his Fine Art has been creating waves and providing discussion among his many clients, adding another arm to his forward momentum. Morrison has been a long-time collector of contemporary art, owning pieces by Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring, Jamie Reid, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, RISK and many others, and for the past few years has put brush to canvas himself and created his own fine art works. Morrison considers himself fortunate to be able to express himself creatively on canvas as well as through music. His provocative and thought-inspiring statements embrace concepts of duality and mixed metaphors, and his use of color and mixed media has been embraced by serious art collectors. Jane Fonda owns a portrait painted by Morrison, Shepard Fairey owns a Clockwork Orange piece, top LA Restaurant owner Craig Susser commissioned a piece that hangs inside his restaurant ‘Craigs’ in Los Angeles, he has collaborated on works with Lincoln Townley, Plastic Jesus and RISK, and Morrison has a piece from his Butterfly series hanging in The U.S. Capitol.
